Designer Bárbara Sánchez-Kane approaches her eponymous menswear brand, Sánchez-Kane, with the conviction of an artist and an activist agenda. In the spirit of nonconformity, her pieces elude gender stereotypes and incorporate unorthodox materials derived from her Mexican roots as a way to address social and political issues. Used water bottles, shaped wire appendages, red long-stemmed roses—added to re-imagined traditional menswear silhouettes on the moving body—allow Sánchez-Kane to move fluidly between both worlds of fashion and art.
